First off welcome to teenhelp!

As for your problem I think you just need to stop caring so much about what people say about you and focus in on what matters to you. Such as school work and what not.

The first step to fixing the problem is admitting you have one. So the ball is already in motion. Now you just need to stop hacking facebook accounts its not your property or place to view other peoples accounts.

If I was you I’d be very careful because this can kill your whole social life. From now on if you have an issue with someone confront them don’t hack there facebook account because that cyber bullying and that’s not acceptable.

I just want to say that I deactivated my facebook years ago and last week it was hacked.

I got an email saying it'd been reactivated. Now I've had bad times with FB and really don't want them bringing up again. That FB email did that. I started freaking out. I had to change passwords on my other accounts to make sure they were safe. I was in tears for part of the night.

Everytime you hack someone's facebook you could be doing this to them too. Just something for you to think about.

A wise woman once said to me "It's not your business what other's think about you" At the time, I looked at her like she was nuts. Of course I should worry about what other people think about me!

But now, looking back. So much stuff happens to people over this. They tear themselves apart. If you just focus on yourself and what you're doing with your own life, you won't have such a problem.

Try being honest, and asking them straight out if they've said anything about you before taking the steps to hack their account. Some things are better left unknown. If they answer with 'nothing', don't get curious. Just believe them. Even if you don't feel you can't, just try. You can't be everyone, you can only be yourself.

Honestly man, hacking shit is fun. But not personnel things like facebook, who cares what people have too say about you dude (if your a girl, my bad) Just let it go before you get in shit, if someone decides too inform the police, you can get invasion of privacy charges.

Re: addicted to facebook and other hacking - January 10th 2010, 05:43 AM

I remember when I was in 5th grade, I accidentally hacked into the diary of this girl who wasn't even my friend at the time, and I read a journal entry about myself in it saying I was a crybaby and a loser, and since then I guess I've read more stuff I shouldn't have read because I was just really interested in knowing if anyone has something nasty to say about me. Another reason is just that my parents fight about me a lot and my dad always has mean shit to say about me when I'm "out of ear-shot" or not. From my experience, I can kind of see how things that happened in your life might cause you to distrust people.. and assume that they have mean shit to say about you. Does that make sense to you?

What if you learned to trust the people around you not to say mean things behind your back, and accept that you can't please everyone, always. You're probably a good person, and I think if you did things that were in line with what you think is "right" or "good" to you, you would think more of yourself, and honestly care less about the not-nice people.

Sounds like you're really having a lot going on though. Take care, and welcome to teenhelp

people will talk about you whether you like it or not. people talk about other people, good or bad.. and it's not something you can control. if someone is slagging you off, hacking into their facebook is not the way to deal with it. it's pretty immature to be honest and it really does upset people. i know when i got my facebook hacked it was pretty traumatic, because whoever hacked it changed all my info, deleted loads of my photos, wrote horrible stuff about my friends on my about me.. stuff like that. think about what you're doing to the person who you're hacking. two wrongs don't make a right.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Re: addicted to facebook and other hacking - January 10th 2010, 08:36 AM

I've had a lot of hard times with people, and they don't always think the best things about me. Last year I let other people's thoughts ruin my life, and because of these losers I allowed myself to become majorly depressed, and the depression is still something I am trying to overcome. I am now fearful of any kind of social situation, to the point that I rarely leave my house. All of this because a few kids had negative thoughts about me - a few kids who barely knew me.

My point is, don't EVER allow anyone to influence your life to this extent. Don't let anyone make you feel like less of a person, or drive you to do things such as hacking. Because in five years from now, you won't be on their mind any longer. So why should they, for even one minute, be on yours?

Maybe you should add facebook, along with any other website you use to hack, to your blocked websites list so that you simply can't access it. That way you will not be able to hack any accounts. I would keep it blocked until you feel you can better manage yourself online.

Don't let a loser who doesn't even give a darn about you ruin your life. And don't waste so much of your time trying to ruin theirs, either. They're just not worth the effort.

First off, welcome to TH!
Secondly, you need to stop hacking into people's accounts and stop caring what people think of you. If they think good or bad things about you, it doesn't matter, you shouldn't care so much about what people are saying, try not to concentrate on it so much and just do something else to help you forget about it.

Firstly it is great to know that you know hacking into other peoples accounts is wrong, so thats the first step on getting over your addiction.

It is very important that you respect other peoples privacy and personal space.

However, i think you have a paranoya problem ... and it is totally normal to feel curious if people are talking about you. At the end of the day, if people love you or dislike you they will talk or think about you. ... It's just a human thing to do.

Don't worry yourself over things which may not be important. Concentrate on the people who do like you. And if you improve on forfilling your addiction less, i think you would gain so much respect.

Maybe try and stay off the computer for a while.
And maybe you should delete your account??? Maybe deleting it will give less temptation to use it???... Considder this a fresh start.

I think you need to find a more fun hobby for yourself to keep yourself occupied. Or instead, go onto msn and talk to someone, have a deep conversation.
Pretty much find a distraction.
